Hi,

 

Tried the below code :

1.clicking the text box :

  var textbox = Sys.Process().WinFormsObject("").WinFormsObject("").WinFormsObject("TextBoxMaskBox", "");

  textbox.Click();

 

2. var MI = Sys.Process("").WaitWinFormsObject("GenericSelect", 25000);
if(MI.Exists)
{

  do the action

}

else 

{

  Log.Message(Window not popping up );

}

 

 The window takes exactly 5 mins to get popped up in the screen after the click , desktop application automatically closes after the delay or wait don't know why

    5 minutes is 300000 milliseconds.  so, replae the 25000 with 300000 and try again.

        Okay, it's not really clear here what you're trying to accomplish.  

        Is this right?

        in 1) you are clicking a text box

        in 2) you want to wait exactly 5 mins for a window to pop up but your application closes before that time is up

         

        Questions

        a) What happens when you try this manually?  Does the window pop up in 5 mins or does the application still close?

        b) What do you need to do with the window once it pops up?
